I will admit that I don’t like Wanda Sykes one bit. But the tongue lashing she’s taking from the right wing after her appearance at the white house correspondents’ dinner is a bit hypocritical. She criticized Rush Limbaugh which I can’t fault her on. She said things such as I think Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker [on 9/11] but he was just so strung out on OxyContin he missed his flight. He needs a good water boarding — that’s what he needs.” And “he wishes the president would fail well I wish his kidneys would fail.”
Now what I found so funny was that a journalist actually said “Imagine if a comedian “joked” that Obama was a terrorist who was guilty of treason and should be tortured and allowed to die. There would justifiably be an outcry.” Now I don’t know where the hell this guy was during the elections but these people not only called him a terrorist they said he palled around with them and was an undercover Muslim among other derogatory and untrue statements.
And I didn’t once here the right wing cry about it. And in fact in some cases the one banging the “he’s a terrorist” drum was the Republican Vice President elect Sarah Palin. Now as far as I am concerned Rush Limbaugh is a fat sloppy junky who seems to be in control of the Republican Party. And whether or not Wanda Sykes makes fun of that is neither here nor there for me. Sure she wished the guys kidneys would fail, but isn’t that freedom of speech just like Rush wishing the president would fail?
What’s the big deal? She is a comedienne and just like Rush said after he blasted that wished the president would fail all over the air waves, he is just a comedian making jokes. Can’t the same be said about the ever irritating Wanda Sykes? Why doesn’t the right wing head its own advice and take a joke for a joke.
So what is the issue? That Wanda Sykes was well beyond tasteful with her jokes? Who around here didn’t know that this idiotic lady had no taste? And who the hell ever cared about someone not having good sense or taste before? No right winger gave a damn that Rush had and has no taste or good sense. Hell where was Don Imus’ taste or good sense when he was calling black ladies nappy headed ho’s?
The real problem is the hypocrisy or the right wing that leaks like so much sweat on that fat ass Rush’s forehead. They will lead the witch hunt yelling about birth certificates, Muslims, friends being terrorists and all that then turn around and act like a stupid joker named Wanda Sykes somehow speaks for the entire Democratic Party. Oh my god, give me a break, please. And leading the charge is Michelle Malkin who has said some of the most erroneous things that anyone can say.
This whole situation is a joke! When are we going to grow up in our taste for news and a government? We are failing as a people and it has nothing to do with who our president is, what Wanda Sykes says or that Rush Limbaugh wishes we would. We are failing because instead of seriously looking at working together as a people we continuously separate and point the fingers of incredulity; instead of actually making this a better place for EVERYBODY. This is just my two cents on this un-news story.
